St James’s Settlement publishes picture book during pandemic

Publish Date: 31-Aug-2020

Kindergartens have been suspended in Hong Kong in order to prevent COVID-19 from spreading among children. During this period, parents may use picture books to educate their children from home. Picture books offer children a learning process which is more imaginative and more fun. St James’ Settlement’s SOWGOOD! Positive Education Centre partnered with local author Ms Ko Pui-chung and launched the centre’s first picture book Happy Birthday for kindergarten students helping them to cultivate positive characters.

SOWGOOD! Positive Education Centre held a small-scale book launch ceremony on 18 August. The Centre’s director Ms Cheung Wai-pui and the author Ms Ko shared their experiences of creating this picture book. Two children were also invited to read the book aloud. Their enjoyment in reading the book shows picture books bring out the happiness and innocence of children.
